Fabric Envelope

We are making some spiritual survival kits for a Relief Society activity this week.  These cute kits included a bunch of pamphlets and cards that we can share should the occasion arise.  These are the instructions for sewing the envelopes.
11 x 11 (mine are like 11 x 10 1/2 but oh well) scrap of fabric.  We had so many to make we cut up a sheet.
11 x 11 piece of fusible interfacing
11x7 scrap of patterned fabric

First, iron the fabric.  Iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of the square.  Place fabric pieces right sides together.
Sew the 3 sides of the two pieces of fabric together.
Clip the edges and turn right side out.
Iron the bottom sides in.
Sew around the whole envelope.  This will top stitch the top and hem the bottom.
Iron up the bottom, making sure the pamphlets and papers fit, then sew up the sides.

Iron down the top and you are done!
